When I realized I had two beads in the same color, I started to think of project ideas for using them together. The most obvious method would be to include them as a 2 tiered pendant, but I'd like to try something a little bit different. I'm thinking of taking the rectangular bead, running craft wire through the hole and bringing the ends to the middle point on top of the bead, giving it a twist and adding a variety of glass, stone, pearl and/or swarovski sparkle!! Sort of like a "beaded" bead. I think it will give it an artistic flair.
In that case, I think it would be fun as a bracelet focal bead, the only trouble then is what to do with the little briolette type bead... Let me know what you think, I am certainly open to ideas!! :)
